Tell us about your education.
I started my education at the Haliburton School of the Arts (Fleming College) in Haliburton Ontario where I fell in love with metal. I then moved on to Georgian College in Barrie, Ontario where I participated in the Jewellery and Metals and Goldsmithing and Silversmithing courses.
I have had further training through the expertise of the jewellers at O.R. Steadman and Son (Thorold, ON) and through Zalecorp.
Share some of your career highlights or goals.
I have since moved on as a Restyle Jeweller for Zalecorp (People's, Mappin's, Zales and Gordon's). I was paired up with their best jewellers who taught me things no other school could regarding stone setting and tips and tricks with speed and technique. I have been all over eastern Canada and some of the US honing my craft and making a difference with each customer. It's a great feeling when you become a part of someone's life by changing or creating the perfect piece for them.
I currently am residing in Calgary, AB, where I hope to expand my possibilities as a part of a local store, and I hope to open my own gallery/shop in the future.
